Inquisitive Blendon Middle School sixth graders surround special visitor Maria Wolfe. 




Maria Wolfe, a Westerville City Schools grandparent and active community member, recently visited sixth grade students at Blendon Middle School to share her experiences about growing up in Cuba and moving to the United States.

She talked about Cuba’s history, education system, and the challenges of moving to a new country when she was a sixth-grader.  The pupils learned how to conduct an interview and formulated ideas for their National History Day projects.  This year’s theme is Breaking Barriers.
